So bizarre that Werner Herzong directed this mini-documentary on The Killers in advance of their online concert a week ago. What are the odds Herzog had heard any music by The Killers in advance of this gig? I say 2%, plus or minus 2%.
Even if you're not a huge fan of The Killers, it's worth watching if you're a fan of Werner Herzog's voiceover narration, and really, who isn't? Leave it to Herzog to inject himself in what should be a puff piece for The Killers and questioning the reality of their hometown.
"But this is all fake, this town here, is it? And Las Vegas itself? The Strip? Does it look real to you?"
At times it feels like Herzog is playing a joke, but it's hard to tell if The Killers were in on it.
I would create a Kickstarter project to raise money for Herzog to narrate my childhood home videos.
